GREEN - The Green Bay Blizzard are looking for new ownership.
Four of the five members of the team's ownership group have decided to move on, said Art Clarkson, the Chief Operating Officer for the Indoor League Football team.
In a release, the team announced they would have to suspend operations if new ownership was not secured by September 1st, 2013. The deadline is imposed by the league as a timeline for which teams need to commit to the upcoming season.
When asked if that was a realistic possibility, just one year after celebrating their 10th season of existence, Clarkson wasn't ready to cast off the program.
"I think that's a last resort," he said. "First of all, other people might want to buy the franchise, not just me. I'm trying to put together a group that will keep the franchise going. We have a great relationship with PMI and a great relationship with the community."
